9:05 am
through pristine snow, to the measuring spots off of highway 50. a week ago just 13 inches of snow here. now nearly four times as much. the amount of snow here seems impressive. it is really the water content that is key. if last week's snow pack melted all at once, it would produce just 1.7-inched of water. this snow would provide over 9 inches of water. because of a bone dry winter up until last week, that number is just 39% of the historic average for the state. compare that to 7% of average before the storms. >> that is a huge boost to what we were -- what we had been seeing back last week before the storms hit. >> reporter: a couple of weeks ago the state water board got a dismal report on the snow pack, with 75% of the state seeing drought conditions. now there is optimism. with another possible storm this weekend, we are within shouting distance of an average year. >> two more of these event
9:06 am
that's we had over the -- events that we had over the weekend would bring us to average. >> reporter: a week before the latest storms, no one predicted they would be as big or wet as they turned out to be. it could have easily turned the other way. >> that was lonnie long reporting for us. check out these images from the national weather service. they show how much the storms have made a difference in the state. on the left happened side of the screen is a photo taken on monday. you see a lot of white up in the sierra. the picture on the right is from february 17th, just a few weeks ago. you can see hardly any snow in the mountains. >> wow, what a difference. steve paulson is here to talk about when we are likely to get more wet weather. and today it will be sunny. >> mostly sunny. partly sunny. warmer. we're going to get rain before we get more snow. this week favors rain over snow and snow level might go above lake level by the time we get to the weekend. another cold pattern will

9:09 am
there had is a problem that needs to be addressed here. we want to make sure it is done in a prudent way that is more surgical to limit unintended consequences. >> paul ryan says that president trump is right to call out other countries for unfair trade practices. but there is a smarter way to go. the president has defended the tariffs saying it will give a boost to aluminum and steel companies. a former trump aide may refuse to cooperate with the special counsel investigating russian election interference. but then in just one day, he appeared to change his mind. sam spoke out in several interviews yesterday. initially he was defiant, saying he would refuse to appear before a grand jury even after receiving a subpoena from robert mueller. he also seemed to indicate that he believes that investigators may have incriminating evidence on president trump. and that led to a war of words with the white house. >> do you think that they have something on the president?
9:10 am
>> i think they may. >> what? >> i think he may have done something during the election. but i don't know that. >> look, i'm not going to weigh into somebody who doesn't work at the white house. i can tell from you our perspective, we are fully cooperating with the office of the special counsel. >> harris should shut up. >> later on, he told the associated press that he would likely end up cooperating with the special counsel. yesterday president trump met with israel's prime minister. and among many issues they talked about moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem in may. >> the presidents were discussing whether or not to make that decision. and they promised it in their campaigns but they never were able to do what they should have done. i was able to do it. >> mr. president, this will be remembered by our people throughout the ages. >> both of them were clearly in support of the idea. the president did say he was a little taken aback by the price tag of moving the embassy. he is trying to lower the cost.
9:11 am
>> they put an order in front of my desk last week for a billion dollars. i said a billion? what is that for? we're going to build an embassy. we're not going to spend a billion dollars. and we're actually doing it for about $250,000. so check that out. >> experts say in order to save money, the president will have to move ambassador freeman and a number of staff members to the existing consulate in jerusalem. a job fair is being held in san jose today. the event runs from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the sheraton san jose airport there. will be representatives from jobs in several fields, including customer service, accounting, insurance, sales and banking. to register for the free event, head to our website at and click on web links. well, a series of new studies show we may not know ourselves as well as we think we do. social scientists say all
9:12 am
people like to think they're intelligent, generous and funny. >> that is true. >> in your case, sal, it is. we can't accurately rate ourselves on those types of traits apparently. scientists say usually family and friends are not too much better. they say a coworker is a better judge of who we really are. and scientists say if you want the most accurate picture of who you are, ask a group of coworkers. >> i like that idea. >> who am i? >> how am i? >> let's not do this live. >> no. let's do it behind the scenes. i have a family member who works in tech and they have a structured annual review process. her manager reviews her. >> uh-huh. >> she picks three people in her office billioning to review. there are two anonymous. it is very extensive. while it can be painful, it is helpful to get that honest feedback. >> you're trying to improve. >> right. >> yes. >> alex, you're pretty good. >> thank you very much, sal. >> pretty good. >> stay with us. mornings on 2 the 9 continues
